Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Codes Recently I purchased some watery gas from a local station. The car rattled and quit every time I pressed the brake. I basically had to run red lights and stop signs to make it home. A couple of days later the car stereo stop functioning and a code request came on. Over the next 3 days, when I know for sure that my headlights were off because I have driven the car in about 3 maybe 4 days; the lights popped on. I cut them off only to find the next morning that they were back on. The car won't start now and I was wondering if it had something to do with the watery gas, codes needing to be reset, or something else. Can you please help????

These faults have no relation to watery gas... it sounds like it has a loose connection at the battery or a high resistance in one of the terminals

I have a 2000 ford focus. The check engine light is on again after mechanic fixed the mass air flow sensor now the light is on again, what do I need to do to fix the problem?

Then probably the check engine light is because of something else, and could be a number of things. Heck it could even be a badly screwed gas cap, since it keeps the tank air tight and newer cars like yours test what they call the EVAP system and will turn on the check engine light if it finds even a very small leak. On my car right now i have a check engine on because the filler neck is rusted and so the gas cap doesn't seal correctly just so you know how far this can go. So if you really want to get the light off, you will need to have to codes pulled out of the computer to see what the problem is this time and fix it. Sorry if this isn't exactly a precise answer, but the check engine light is only there to let you know there is something out of wack, be it big or small, important or not, and there are close to about 1000 different codes that can be given by the computer that will light up the check engine, so without any codes, all we can do is poke in the dark until we find the target, so you will definetly need to get a scanner plugged in the OBD plug to get the codes out and find out what's wrong. That doesnt mean you HAVE to get it fixed on the spot though, most garages will charge a small fee just to get the codes out and give them to you if you want to fix it yourself. So just go to a garage you trust, or a good friend which also happens to be a mechanic with a scanner and have the codes checked. After that, feel free to write me up and i'll help you fix the problem. Hope this helps :)

2000 nissan xterra~ feels like i got watery gas (checked, no) or running out of gas (not). sputters and jerks and loses power badly until can push gas pedal to floor and won't go above 5 mph. first time it...

Mass air flow sensor might be dirty or failing.
Clean sensor when cold with mass air sensor cleaner only.
that controls the throttle opening and closing.

What does the red light buy the empty gas light mean?

It means you only have a few gallons of gas left and you need to find a gas station quick before you run out of gas and have to start pushing.

I here a rattle wen i press the gas which last for about 3 seconds than the engine is quite again

This "rattle" is most likely caused by fuel knock and is not injurious to the engine. However if you wish to rid yourself of listening to the sound, you'll have to purchase a higher grade(octane) of fuel. Thank you, Dana

Not starting after replacing fuel filter and tune-up

I had the same problem with a 1989 Volvo 740 GLE station wagon. I did the same thing you did. But this time I talked to the local Independent Volvo service shop, not the dealer. The problem turn out to a bad fuel pump in the gas tank. You can replace it from inside the back of the station wagon. Just remove the floor panel to access the top of the fuel tank. But before you do; note that there are two fuel pumps, one inline underneath the car on the drivers side, and the one inside the gas tank. Before, you replace any of the fuel pumps check the fuel pump relay behind the astray on the left side. It could also be a bad relay.

Rattle/Vibration from front of vehicle when idling at stop

Hi and welcome to FixYa. Please try this:
GO out to the car, and lift up on the hood. Does it raise a bit and rattle? If so;
Open the hood, and look at the perimeter of the front radiator support. You will see 2 small rubber thingys, that look like that they are screwed onto the metal that is holding the radiator. Unscrew them a little, and close the hood. Pull up on the hood and see if the rattle goes away. If not, repeat unscrewing the rubber things until the lift disappears.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.
